in the oil market where the international energy agency has released another monthly report saying they see the global demand growth for oil sliding in this quarter and next year. they reduced the forecast there. we're also seeing production that is coming back online from the north sea. that's pressuring present crude prices and we expect to see another increase in crude supplies here in the u.s. for the weekly supply report. that also adding pressure to the wti contract. the only bright spark in the marketplace is natural gas. it is up for the second straight session. and there we may see a withdrawal from storage. first of the season as we get into the winter months. colder temperatures ahead also could help prop up natural gas futures. we're going to get that report on thursday from the energy information administration. i'm trying to get my acronyms straight here. on thursday we'll also get the oil report. it's going to come a day later because of the veterans day holiday. back to you guys. >> there are a lot of letters in your part of the world. >> there are. there are. >> thanks a lo

, better than expectations. cpi and food energy not affected yet though there does tend to be a pop in prices after big storms like this. it is the philly fed survey that well underperformed where i think we may be seeing a lot of this. there could be some utility output in the year. there could be a whole bunch of businesses shut down and some of it what we don't know is we were accelerating the economy into the election and some of the chain store sales might have dropped off just before sandy came in. and then we seem to be getting an effect certainly in the retail sector, in cars we know. now labor. it's going to be a couple months before this washes out, pardon the pun. >> thank you, steve leisman. simon? >>> it is a busy day, tyler. lawmakers on capitol hill have released their highly anticipated report on the collapse of mf global and jon corzine's role within that. kayla tausche has the very latest. >> simon, a year in the making that 97-page report authored by the republicans on the house oversight subcommittee hardly minces words in singling out former senator jon corzine,

technology business is growing so solutions like that are places we're putting a large amount of our energy behind but we're also counting on the federal government to help us with some certainty, one part has been solved, we have a president for the next four years, now we have to get fiscal tax issues resolved so we can solidify, our customers can feel better and question participate more with them. >> to that point you are meeting with the president, one of many ceos who will be meeting with him tomorrow i believe. what do you plan to tell the white house at that point? what is the most important issue and how do you come at it in terms of giving him some feedback for what the business communities sees in all of this? >> first thing we'll do is listen a little bit to what he has to say and what his plans are for the second term, but i think the business community and me in particular have been very clear. we need a solution to this fiscal cliff that's coming. i have to believe that logic will prevail here with some hard work and it will get a solution and we also need a tax policy that i
and the last administration. look at energy. look at private cultivation. look at texas. look at oklahoma. look at north dakota. they're creating jobs. then look at the epa. certainly growth is the only way out. we talk about cutting spending. we're not even cutting the baseline. we're cutting the growth in spending. >> what about jim's point of view that the deficit as a percentage of gdp is declining? >> i don't believe his math. i see trillion-dollar deficits for the last several years. i see us fighting over 2, 3, or 4 trillion over ten years when we still have a trillion every year for the last three. it doesn't add up. i don't know what jim is looking at. >> well, it's not my number. it's numbers from the government itself. >> that's good. >> the big decision you have to make when you apply fiscal austerity is how fast and how aggressive do you apply it while trying to improve the deficit but also maintain and not hamper the recovery or end the recovery. i would ask rick and everyone this, the question you have to ask yourself, who's best equipped to make that decision? is it a bunch of e
